I ordered my food to go due to a foot injury. This is a quaint little spot that looks authentic and cozy on the inside. They have a full bar with a friendly host of employees. My food was ready in a very short amount of time and I enjoyed a very well prepared martini while I waited. I would... More

Gorgeous presentation, wonderful, attentive waiting staff, and absolutely delicious food!! Crab cakes are to die for, and the ravioli topped with scallops, crab meat, tomatoes and mushrooms was scrumptious!

This was a very lively and special restaurant for Christmas Eve. The martinis and Manhattan were perfect and generously sized. The crab cake appetizers of three were scrumptious and could easily be shared. The same cannot be said of the tuna appetizer that was more greens tha tuna. Raw oysters were delicious. Our entrees of cod, salmon and a seafood... More

The fiance and i like trying new resturaunts, this one is very good, price is up there, but worth it. Reservations can be a little tricky to get, but worth it. The oysters were very good, the chowder was excellent. The scallops had excellent taste, but had something occasionally crunchy about them. I would recommend to anyone wanting a good... More

We have been to Oceano many times because we love the location in downtown Clayton and the service is great. I really want to love this place but the food is always average. Not bad, but just not great.

I live across the street from this restaurant, I know the waiters, the chefs, the bartenders, and the owner. It's a class act with a flair for the seafood but with a classy sampling of nearly any solution for a particular palette. If it's not on the menu the way you like it, they will do all they can to...

Stopped by while on a short tour of Clayton with my date. Told her how much I liked the restaurant for drinks after work. To my surprise, they were open and had a GREAT Happy Hour. Sliders, crab cakes, mussels and mixed drinks make this a must do for Clayton.
